    So you choose to wardrive in public? Seems kind of odd for someone that doesn't want to leave the house unless they have an odd reason.

    My network at home runs WPA2 with MAC address filtering,
    MAC filtering provides absolutely no security whatsoever.

    and I have the DMZ host running AirSnarf and AirPwn to throw out fake access points to confuse wardrivers while the real access point has its SSID broadcast disabled.
    Kismet doesn't care if your SSID is hidden, it will see it anyway, so hiding it from 'wardrivers' isn't doing much. Also it seems odd that you want to map out everyone else's networks, but choose to hide your own.

    I also have the wireless router set to not respond to ping commands.
    Yep, that's some security for ya. No one could ever find something if it didn't respond to a ping.

    On the network itself, my workstations run drivers for plug-and-play hard drives that I secure physically whenever I am away from my computer; I use biometrics for authentication;
    Biometrics? You do realize that just about every single fingerprint scanner out there is easily compromised? If someone really wants to get into it, they will.

    and I have all the computers set to lock the account when the screensaver activates. Put in layman's terms - Paranoia-based security, even when I am wardriving I use this level of security.
    I wouldn't consider your security measures 'laymans terms', I would consider them lame terms. It sounds as though you read some magazine articles about security and decided to adopt them without actually doing any research first to find if they were actually practical or made sense.

    Now, to answer your question about wardriving, I define wardriving as a means to map out all the available wi-fi hotspots in a given geographical area without having to go from building to building.
    So why again if you're using Kismet would you need to spoof your MAC? That part still makes no sense whatsoever. You do realize that there isn't some international registry of MAC addresses that shows who owns what? So if your MAC were to appear on someone's logs while really wardriving there isn't anyway for it to be traced back to you?
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Here you go, I think you probably already have it matted and framed on your wall, but just in case.

    How do you actually accomplish this without, you know, driving around?
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Hey Barry, I've found it's just easier to wrap my laptop and Access points in foil.

    Sometimes I try to fit a 16-character string into an 8–byte space, on purpose.

    No, for that you need a microwave oven with the door switch disabled.

    That's what I've been doing wrong!
